The Byre is really peaceful (apart from the Cockerel!), very clean & well maintained. It is very cosy and well equipped. We were able to have visitors for lunch one day and there was plenty of room for us all. (6 adults and 3 small children!) Beata is very friendly, she makes you feel welcome & relaxed from the moment... More

We took 2 of our children to Achaleven Byre in May and had a fantastic time. The accommodation was clean and tidy and had everything we could possibly need. Just like being at home. The facilities in and around Oban are amazing and we had one of the best holidays ever. Would highly recommend the accommodation and the area to... More

This was our 5th visit to Achaleven Byre - as usual everything was clean and tidy and Beata was her usual accommodating self. We hired bikes and were able to store them in the shed. Liked the cockerels from the next door farm. We would thoroughly recommend the self-catering byre. Roll on our next visit. It is a very convenient... More

This cottage is just a great wee place for a getaway from the stressful everyday life. When we arrived we were warmly welcomed by the owner and when we opened the door we discovered a bright, well decorated good size cottage with a large double door into a private garden. The place was sparkling clean and all appliances, bathroom, towels,... More

Had the absolute pleasure of staying here for 5 days on our first trip to Scotland. The accommodations were superb; clean, quiet, comfortable, roomy but cozy. The view is fantastic and the garden lovely. A short drive will take you into beautiful Oban. Really hated to leave but looking forward to going back.

What a lovely place to stay, accommodation was fantastic !!! Walked in to the lovely smell of fresh linen :-) It has everything you could look for, comfy sofa, comfy bed all mod cons in the kitchen, good sized TV, internet access and FANTASTIC shower. Garden is lovely too. Will definitely go back.

Booked a 3 night stay at Achaleven Byre as our first stop-over for our Scotish touring holiday in May 2013 based solely on its location (near Oban) and TripAdvisor ratings. To say we weren't disappointed would be an understatement. It was a home from home with far more facilities than we have experienced in self-catering accommodation. Beata made us very... More

Achaleven Byre is just stunning..... Just spent one night, but will definitely go back for more :) Beata is a lovely person and made us feel very welcome. The byre is cosy, has a lovely garden area and totally peaceful,The bottle of wine which was chilling in the fridge was a lovely touch.

What a lovely cottage. Easy to find and excellent value for money. It had everything we needed and more. The cottage was spotlessly clean and really snug. We will definitely return for another quiet break.
